Plagge ... In Circles Audio CDPurchased

The compositions on this CD circle each other like planets in a binary star system and form an aesthetic as well as an epic union: one gives where the other takes, one is tacit where the other speaks. In fact, all the inner and outer processes are distinguished by contrasts.

The tension between the old and the new is additionally reinforced through the use of extremely archaic as well as modernistic instrumental means. Composer Wolfgang Plagge here takes on the challenge of treading two apparently very dissimilar circles - only to discover that they are tightly connected, like links in a chain.
